A diverse portfolio of devices—and people
Fast growth can put a lot of strain on a company’s’ infrastructure and processes, and Bee had grown seven times in four years. To keep its employees connected and help teams collaborate more effectively, Bee upgraded to Microsoft 365 and its modern workplace capabilities.
The Bee team is spread across southern Sweden, with project leaders often in the field. Now everybody in the company has anytime, anywhere access to Bee apps, data, and network—without device requirements—to accommodate everyone’s needs.
“Everybody knows how to use Microsoft 365,” Packer explains. “Everybody gets it—and that’s freeing time for innovation. They’re using the products in more and more advanced ways.”
Employees at Bee use Microsoft Teams, SharePoint Online, and OneNote to share documents, take notes, and have discussions and move across the entire environment with ease. “In the old days, you could click around for 10 minutes and not find the document you were looking for,” says Martin Karlsson, Chief Digital Officer at Bee. “But with SharePoint Online, we can find the documents we need much more quickly.”
Alongside Microsoft 365, Bee also uses Power BI to get key insights to support its growth. “Understanding customer patterns is critical for our success,” says Packer. “We’re heavy users of Power BI, to see where, when, and how much people are charging—it definitely gives us a competitive advantage.”
